And then there was the unforgettable Gene Freese in one of Veeck's horrible trades after the 1959 season. We traded Sox phenom Johnny Callison to get this guy. It was rumored that Sox season ticket holders in the low boxes increased their life insurance after having to dodge errant throws from Freese. He lasted one year on the Southside but the good news is that we were able to get Juan Pizarro from the Braves/Reds in a 3 way trade for him. Pizarro had some very good years with a 75-47 record in 6 years with the Sox.
Batting in the second position for the White Sox, number 2, the second baseman Nelson Fox.
